Restoration ecologists with the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area are seeking volunteers to help replant areas burned in last year’s Woolsey Fire this Saturday. Students looking for a preview of restoration ecology work and hands-on experience planting native grasses and shrubs can spend the day helping Re-plant Love achieve a goal of 3,000 plants placed.
The restoration event will run from 9 to 5 Saturday, working out of the Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills, with food, drinks, and music provided. Volunteer sign-up is at the Re-plant Love website.
